Controversy ‘Always Around’


The church is not exempt from controversy, we will always find some who stand firmly by their traditions, and others that seem to question everything.

Knowing what you believe and why you believe it. Our Lord and Our Friend wants us to question, and not just blindly believe. Questioning for knowledge, is a good thing because we have been created with an inquiring mind.

Traditions are great pillars, to build on, but unless we understand the workings of the pillars, we are relying on someone else faith. Faith is a personal thing, but that is not an excuse, to share The Gospel as we have been instructed. Personal faith, coming together in corporate worship and encouragement, is a church.

The same is also the same in secular belief, eg; evolution, you ask the average person on the street to explain it, they will explain someone else belief, without knowing why they believed it. After all it is only a belief systems, as nobody has proved it, despite the aesthetes claims.

Christianity is  a belief system that will lead us to Our Creator God, that loves us and has a purpose for our lives. When we find Him for ourselves, it changes into a relationship, with Our Loving God that created us. A relationship, that will lead to Freedom. Grace, Mercy, Love and Forgiveness, something we never get from the ‘evolution belief system.

We will never get to know all about our Loving Creator God on this side of eternity, due to the vastness of God. But we should be walking more and more with Him, on our daily journey through life.

Many followers are held back in their walk and growth in Him, because they have either a partial or confused understanding. But the excitement of Knowing Our Lord and Our Friend, should never allow us, to stop sharing about Him. Apollos in Acts 18 verse 24: had the basic of knowing,  about Our Lord and Our Friend, and that bases gave him great enthusiasm. Once He obtained, more knowledge, with the help of other genuine followers,  he became even more effective in growing the church.

With The Holy Spirit’s help, Who has come to be our Comforter and Helper, our lives, should always be exciting and challenging. The Christian life should never grow stagnant or boring, because there is so much we can learn about Our Loving Creator God.1 Corinthians 2 verse 12: “Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but The Spirit who is from God, in order to know what has been freely given to us by God”.

There is room for lots of different characters in the Kingdom of God, because He has created us as individuals, {individual fingerprints}, and we have been created, for purpose and destiny,

God Bless.
